Moroccan Lentil Pumpkin Soup
If the Thermomix is good at anything...it is making soup. (check out my Souperbowl book if you don’t believe me!) I love to whip up a soup in very little time packed with flavour just like this one. Serve with or without bread, rolls, flat bread of choice. We didn’t have anything with it except I admit, I did have more than one serving. Delish!
Preserved Lemon can be purchased or you can make your own. I have yet to do a recipe...watch this space.
